Displays In 43 Stores The 19th annual Algona 4-H Day will be held Saturday, April 3, sponsored by the Algona Chamber of Commerce. The president and vice-president of each organization have been invited to be guests of an assigned store or place of business that afternoon. A space in a display window or table inside will be used to publicize the 4-H work or some project on which the club is working. These displays will be set up in the morning so they can be viewed by visitors. The leaders of each group have been asked to assist the two officers of each club in setting up the displays. THERE ARE about 800 youths in Kossuth County who are engaged in 4-H work, have 43 clubs and 43 displays. It is interesting to them to come to Algona and view and compare the various displays. There are three more clubs this year. There will be an optional tour of the City Hall and Fire Department in the morning. One tour starts at 10 a.m. and the other at H a.m. during which time the processes of the city government will be explained. The County President of the 4-H Girls Clubs is Kim Martinek, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Martinek of rural Wesley. The President of the 4-H County Boys Clubs is Edward Kiilsholm, son of Mr. and Mrs. Karl Kiilsholm of rural Algona. They will both be named as "Honorary Mayor" for the day, sitting in the mayor's office during court and being able to observe the functions of the office. DURING THE afternoon, the owner or manager of the place of business in which the club will have its displays, will fully explain the method of operation of his business. The president and vice-president of that club will be his guests for the afternoon, and at about 5:30 p.m. he will take them out for dinner. This will afford them an opportunity to establish a closer relationship. After dinner, he will take the guests to the V.F.W. Building, .wherethere will be a meeting of the presidents and vice-presidents of all the 4-H Clubs of the county. A short program is planned for that meeting at the V.F.W. including introductions to the 4-H Club Officers and speeches of welcome by city officials. Following that, the president and vice-president of each club will be given tickets to a movie, "Don't Raise the Bridge, Lower the River" to be shown in Algona April 17th at a special matinee at 1;30 p.m. These tickets will be given by Wayne Ellis, manager of the Algona Theatre. It is the hope of the members of the Chamber of Commerce that this program for April 3 will help to emphasize and publicize the importance of the'work of 4-H, and that it will bring about a closer feeling between the clubs and leaders and merchants'and businessmen of Algona.
